PIATKUS BOOKS was launched thirty years ago from the spare bedroom of Judy Piatkus’ home. Over the years, Piatkus has become one of the UK’s leading independent publishers of fiction and lifestyle titles, and now, as part of Little, Brown, continues to bring a wonderful range of books to a wide readership. Our mission is to acquire the best books in each of our core genres, and publish them using the resources we have as part of a large international company as well as the creative flair and passion of the Piatkus team. We are a committed group of enthusiastic editors, publicists, marketers and salespeople who all want to see Piatkus thrive, bringing success to our imprint and our authors.
Our non-fiction lifestyle list covers the areas of health, mind, body and spirit, self-help, business, personal development and all the topics that interest people in their daily lives. We excel in publishing international authorities such as Patrick Holford, the UK's leading nutritionist, Professor Mark Williams and Dr Danny Penman, the authors of Mindfulness, bestselling MBS authors such as Martha Beck and business authors like David Allen and Richard Koch.
Piatkus is known for our wide variety of genre fiction, which includes paranormal romance, historical romance, urban fantasy and suspense. The list includes some of the biggest names in popular fiction including Nora Roberts, J. D. Robb, Sherrilyn Kenyon, Christine Feehan and Mary Balogh, plus exciting new British authors writing suspense, such as Rosamund Lupton, the Sunday Times bestselling author of Sister, and Lisa Ballantyne, author of the enthralling The Guilty One.
Piatkus only accepts submissions sent to us via an agent. We no longer accept an unsolicited material.
